It would be impossible to choose which is more compelling on a Tuesday: a one-night-only debate between Mike Pence and Tim Kaine, or another interview with presidential candidate Gary Johnson.
It’s difficult to believe that either Pence or Kaine will be the next vice president, but at least they’re acting like people care; Johnson seems to have given up completely. Not that dropping out would be a bad idea, but it’s way too late for him to bow out with any dignity intact, seeing as he keeps piling up the “Aleppo moments.”
Having famously drawn a blank on the name of the Syrian city, Johnson has apparently decided that rather than brush up on geography, he’ll just sell his unfamiliarity with foreign countries as a plus. How can he bomb someplace he can’t find on a map?
A very loud and angry Gary Johnson is on my teevee yelling that he won't start any wars because he knows nothing about foreign countries.

@imillhiser Is Rod Serling standing in the corner commenting on this? Twilight Zone.

Is this the Twilight Zone? Close; it’s MSNBC.

The quote isn’t quite so bad in context — Johnson seemingly was trying to argue that his anti-war philosophy was preferable to electing people who aren’t nearly as mellow but “can dot the i’s and cross the t’s on these names and geographic locations.”

You'd think he'd just stop appearing on MSNBC https://t.co/L8tQ2fBZBF

He's giving potheads a bad name. https://t.co/YV3dbslRJb

He probably could be counted on to give solid directions to the nearest marijuana dispensary, so he still has that going for him.
@RubinReport make him stop! He's a single person miraculously walking back the recent progress made on pot.

@RubinReport I actually think he's a Hillary plant at this point. NO-ONE is this thick.
